$200,000 fine for speeding

And he was only going 50MPH in a 25MPH zone. Speeding fines in Finland are a percentage of your annual income.

And how about the motorcyclist in Alberta, Canada, who was nabbed at 164 mph last year. He paid out $12,000 for speeding but got to keep his license!

In some parts of the world, they really mean business about obeying speed limits. Here? They might as well skip putting up the speed limit signs on most roads.

If I lived in Finland, I would be executed >>> Speeding, driving under the influence of many known (and unknown) substances, passing stopped school buses to the left, no valid plates (they keep falling off), operating an unsafe vehicle (my rust-bucket), etc, etc, etc...
Doh.
